in virginia, on saturday. campaigning with pat robertson suggesting that president obama was somehow planning to take god off the currency. in fairness. mitt romney opened up with three sentences about the jobless numbers and then got on the talk about job. then talked about president obama apolicy spends his time on a talking about the economy. when they asked what he was actually saying. the campaign manager certainly repeated the talking point. he said the subject has been the economy, is the economy and will be the economy. mitt romney doesn't want to change the subject. he wants to change the economy and that's what he's going to do as president. to be fair, fair enough. that's the message that they want us to get. but that's not all coming from the candidate on the campaign trail. here's governor romney today in ohio. >> when and if i become president of the united states. >> i will not take god out of my heart. i will not take god out of the public square and not out of the platform out of platform. /*. >> his campaign took the scener right through the pentagon and bible belt and nasca
and turn them out. when you see him with pat robertson in virginia, there are other constituencies, but christian conservatives in vermont are very important. when you see him with steve king in iowa, cultural conservatives are important to governor romney. to bay's point about the poll, a lot of people question every poll. but the reason those numbers exist in our poll, the president now plus six is that after his convention, democratic intensity, enthusiasm is up and republican enthusiasm is down. yes, governor romney is winning among dependents but there's a temporary enthusiasm shift in favor of the democrats. we'll see if it lasts. anderson, one more point, i was getting e-mails saying the democrats are overplaying their hands. look at these numbers, which candidate shares your values. the president has a seven-point advantage. 51% to 42% says the president has your values. two weeks ago it was essentially a tie. >> at least at the moment, nationally, if the talk was supposed to hurt the president, if conservatives thought it t would it hasn't nationally. we picked president s
reliefchallenge.com. >>> america's choice 2012 and we are minutes away from a mitt romney campaign event in fairfax, virginia, and burning question of this hour is will the gop presidential nominee keep up with these searing attacks on president obama's anti-american reaction overseas or tamp it down in light of the political counterattacks or will he avoid the topic altogether and try to switch gears to the economy, say? we will know soon enough, but in the meantime, wolf blitzer is weighing in from washington. wolf, there has been quite a bit of volley of attacks going back and forth in the last 24 hours, and some of this has come within mitt romney's own party. he does not have a solid bloc behind him supporting what he said when he criticized the president and the administration's reaction to what is going on overseas. >> he has always had a certain number of republicans as you well know, a lot of the conservatives and the tea party akvists who were always skeptical and dramatically reassured by paul ryan being added to the ticket which helped, but always a element that never really loved mitt romney to
see virginia on there. okay. connecticut. but now, a number of those states are toss ups with democrats leading in several crucial ones including virginia, missouri and also, massachusetts. so, how much of this has to do with mitt romney? "outfront" tonight, dana bash and when races are this tight, it seems like everything must have an effect. whether it be romney's recent 47% remarks on people paying taxes or anything else, right? >> that's certainly the fear among republicans running a lot of these races. that is why with regard to this last controversy over mitt romney's 47% mark, the people who really could have potentially been hurt the most moved very, very fast to distance themselves from mitt romney. take a look at what i'm talking about. the senator from massachusetts. scott brown, who is behind before this. linda mcmahon, the candidate from connecticut and dean heller, the republican senator from nevada. i spoke with him for a fairly long time in the hall of the senate today and he was talking about why he totally disagrees with mitt romney and put it in interes
